Interior Inspiration | The Living Room

Hey Beauties! 

I'm currently right in the middle of redecorating my living room and it has been such a long and confusing process that I thought I would chat about it with you. For as long as I can remember, I have loved home decor and interior design, I really love expressing myself through the space I live in and having a clean, organized and well designed space has a huge impact on my mood. It's really strange but I truly feel less anxious and more motivated in a beautiful space I can call my own. It is so important that I feel comfortable in my home since between blogging and having a chronic illness I spend all of my time inside.

 I live in a converted mansion from 1910 and my living room is massive with high ceilings and an open feel so it can be quite difficult to decorate. I can't paint so I am stuck with yellowy-beige walls but I have a gorgeous wood fireplace, original floors and trimming all around the room. It has a very vintage feel and I like to play with that by using mismatched furniture and thrifted pieces that give a cozy, lived in but chic atmosphere. I try to stick to neutral colours like white and grey so that I can inject subtle colour - gold, silver, pale pink - with accessories. I also really like texture and mixing different ones to make it feel like a warm space to cuddle up and read a book. 


Overtime I have collected accessories and little bits and slowly used them to design the space I really want but now I am taking advantage of Target closing in Canada and I am going to pick up some things to help tie everything together. I will keep you guys updated on my progress but for now you can find me on Pinterest looking for inspiration. 

How do you decorate your space?

  2. My grandma used to have a table just like the round three tiered one in that first picture! Neato!

    I'm with you on the nice space thing, though with this new place it hasn't happened yet. Right now I'm mostly trying to just keep it organized which is helping!

  4. I had no idea you had a chronic illness! I really like the gallery look on the wall. The photos are thoughtfully placed; I'd love to do something like that as well. I can't believe you live in a converted mansion. That's so cool.
